"I knew I wanted to be an ABA Therapist the first time my child needed to see one. I saw the impact she made and the improvements my child made and knew that I wanted to be there for my child as well as other children."
"I've always had an interest in Social Work and Education. I felt that ABA Therapy was a good mix of the two."
Now is the time to really let your passion show. Think back to the time that you decided you wanted to work with children with Autism. Did you choose this career because you were disappointed in the system? Do you have a family member that you wanted to help? Keep your answer honest and positive. We all know there is a lot of dysfunction in the world but during your interview is not the time to focus on that.
